Neighbour praised for response

A man has been praised for his quick-thinking response after he resuscitated a one-year-old girl in Traralgon who was found unconscious in a backyard blow-up pool.

Police said the baby was left unsupervised “for a number of minutes” near the pool in the backyard of a home near Liddiard Road, Traralgon on Sunday.

The girl was found by her mother who carried the unresponsive child out into the street shortly before a neighbour commenced CPR.

Police said the baby was able to be resuscitated within five minutes of being found before she was airlifted to the Royal Children’s Hospital in a stable condition.

It comes as police issued a warning to parents and guardians to supervise their kids near any body of water, including buckets, baths and pools.

Traralgon police said the quick-thinking actions of the neighbour “saved the baby’s life”.
